Cost to Attend the MSFL Annual Event

There are countless volunteers to keep our costs as low as possible. Still, almost everyone pays to attend the MSFL Annual Event. The cost depends on your choices of lodging, meals, and equipment rental. Partial scholarships may be available for those in need, dependant on donations that MSFL receives in any given year.

The 2022 cost structure is as follows:

Room Type (cost noted is for the whole weekend)
  • RAM Center Standard Double Room with RAM Meals - $180
  • RAM Center Standard Single Room with RAM Meals - $210
  • Westminster Room & Meals (Non-College Guides) - $65 (Requires special permission)
  • No Room, Include RAM Meals - $68
  • No Room, No Meals - $25

RAM center accommodations are in shared, heated cabins. Each cabin has a  community restroom with numerous stalls, showers, and sinks. There is also a lounge area with chairs, couch, dining table, and mini-kitchen. These cabins are a short walk to the dining hall and main gathering area for MSFL events.

Westminster rooms are a low-cost alternative lodging choice intended for college guides and the MSFL coordinator. The camp is about 1/2 mile from the RAM center. Up to 30 college guides share one large room for lodging and bring their own sleeping bag and pillow. The coordinator ensures everyone is well-fed and ready for their important activities. If you attend college and would like to be an MSFL guide, this is a nice option for you!

Cross-country ski rental (includes ski's, boots and poles) - $50
If you don't have your own equipment and require a rental, MSFL has a convenient rental option for you. All equipment is delivered to the RAM center for pick-up at the opening ceremony and the guide/skier pairing event on Friday night. Please deliver your equipment back to the RAM center as soon as possible after your final ski event on Sunday.

Transportation - $20
If you need transportation to and from the RAM center, our registration coordinator can help make that happen. To the extent possible, she'll connect with participants that live in similar areas for ride-sharing.

Cancellation Fees
7 days prior to event: $10
2 days prior to event: $25

Scholarship Applications

If you are visual- or mobility-impaired, desire to attend the MSFL event but cannot afford to do so, please consider applying for a scholarship. The board reviews all applications submitted in a given year. Criteria include the funds available for scholarships, participant need, prior scholarships received, any amount the participant can provide on their own, and other factors.

A scholarship application will soon be available online. Until that time, please submit scholarship requests to including your name, address, and phone number. Someone will be in touch with you to gather information and determine your eligibility.
